Electric vehicles recharging stations installed in Estonia
Fast charging stations for electric vehicles has now been completed in Estonia. The nationwide system was installed in order to speed the adoption of Electric Vehicles in the country, and to help reduce the country’s carbon emissions.
The system consists of 165 fast chargers that were built and installed by the engineering firm ABB. The installation and construction was financed “from the government’s sale of 10 million surplus CO2 emission permits to Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation,” Reuters reports.
As part of that deal with Mitsubishi, the Estonian government also received more that “500 electric cars and the financing of a subsidiary system for people to purchase electric cars,” Reuters adds.
